2014 New Face of Engineering: College Edition
| || |
The Pennsylvania State University
Fifth year, architectural engineering
Participation in the student chapter of ASHRAE at Penn State has greatly shaped my college experience. From making some of my best friends to developing my professional and technical skills, ASHRAE has helped me along the way to becoming a well-rounded engineer. The network of professionals and peers this organization has afforded me will stay with me for the rest of my career. Effective communication, leadership skills and interpersonal relationships are some of the lessons I will take with me after college and into my professional career.
New Faces of Engineering: College Edition
